Apothecary - Niagara-on-the-Lake
Acquired by the Ontario Heritage Foundation
in 1969, the Niagara Apothecary is a fine example of a Confederation
era commercial establishment and pharmacy.
Although the building probably dates to
the 1820s, it was extensively renovated in 1866 when it was taken over
by an apothecary. At this time the Italianate windows were
and the interior fitted up as a drug store.
Until it was closed in 1964
it was one of the oldest and one of the longest continuously operating
pharmaceutical practices in Canada.
